    If I want to see a photographer I adore, I simply look in the mirror.

    I am a total narcissist.

    I don't know about 'adore', but my favorite photographer of all time is without a doubt, O. Winston Link.

    Ok I tried to change "adore" to "like" but I can’t … It’s just nice to know peoples influences. I might learn something new.

    Yeah, you're pretty good. But who were your inspirations when you were learning? Or how did you get into photographing animals in the first place?

    I have got to mention Joe McNally. His book 'The Moment it Clicks' has taught me so much about on-the-fly situational photography and lighting techniques that I'd like nothing more than to heartily shake his hand if I met him.

    His technical skill isn't the best in the world, but it's excellent. What really impresses me about him is his ability to work with his surroundings to get beautiful shots out of very difficult situations where lesser photographers would be boggled and overwhelmed.

    People sometimes forget that your skill with a camera is only a part of the larger picture. To be really successful, you need skills for interacting with the world; people skills, and worldly knowledge. You need these things for getting yourself the opportunity to shoot something amazing in the first place. This is the skill he possesses that I admire most.
